Issue #2: Y'all Worldwide
This week's issue takes on a Saudi-funded golf tour, south Indian cuisine, the crisis in Ukraine, and the (fictional) conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic
Hey Y’all -
North Carolina doesn’t exist in a vacuum. A fifth of Charlotte residents were born somewhere other than the United States. Ukrainian and Afghan families live in our city. Charlotte FC has an Austrian captain, an Italian coach, and two Polish designated players.
Food wouldn’t make it to our tables without immigrants. Construction - including all of the units of affordable housing we need - would become much more expensive without international trade and labor. The list goes on.
So in this issue:
Sarah Sheldon took a trip to Egg N’ Curry, a new south Indian restaurant in East Charlotte
Michael Cooper attended the Presidents Cup at Quail Hollow and ruminate on the implications of the Saudi-funded LIV golf tour
Matt Cramer reviewed Tár, an early Oscar contender playing at the Independent Picture House in the PaNoDa (Past North Davidson) Neighborhood*
I wrote about Ukraine and American immigration policy after a trip to Manolo’s Bakery
Finally, Jesse Boykin Kimmel visits Charlotte’s newest stage for the Charlotte’s Off-Broadway production of Thumbs.
It’s a big world out there. I hope one of these pieces inspires y’all to see a new corner of it this week.
* This is a joke, I promise. I don’t like these names either.
